Stepan also worked with Clean the World, the world’s largest organization recycling hotel soap, to lower their price on an order of soap and shampoo for the hygiene kits. Expert Hosiery provided a discounted price on 3,000 pairs of socks, while Quest Food Services and their distributor, Gordon Food Services, donated a refrigerated truck and helped order all of the food to pack the lunches.
